    Hey Armed: Are you watching the juniors play? I am cheering for the Canadians; they haven't won gold for five years.

    Cheers,

    Hi Bailey: I also found this bit about the court ruling.

    "However, it seems more likely that FDA’s Office of Orphan Product Development will alter their modus operandi to accommodate the court’s ruling yet restrict exclusivity for new or improved drugs for orphan populations. The court noted that FDA has control over the process as FDA is responsible for granting both orphan designation and marketing approval, the 2 requirements for exclusivity. FDA could delay the designation of a drug product as orphan until clinical superiority has been demonstrated, or even raise the standard required for a plausible hypothesis of clinical superiority. Ultimately, the effect on Sponsors seeking approval for a previously approved drug via the 505(b)(2) pathway is likely to be a delay in obtaining orphan designation. This could reduce the attractiveness of the drug product to potential investors, introduce uncertainty in the scope of the clinical program, and delay or reduce the tax incentives associated with orphan designation. If developing a previously approved drug for an orphan population, Sponsors are advised to seek the advice of a CRO that frequently submits orphan requests, such as Camargo, to get the best advice on timing of submission of the orphan request, based on the available data, to minimize these consequences."

    I don't understand this kind of law; anybody out there with the correct skills able to comment on the court decision? Nice find Bailey.

    Cheers,

    Good on you Teapartyguy. Any person that delights in the mis-fortune of others is truly a sick individual. We have many of these people on this board. Have you ever noticed that AGW crowd loves it when they can find the tiniest bit evidence of trouble whether valid or not; these are truly sick and disgusting people as well!

    Merry Christmas dude,

    Thanks Armed: Managed to get through the storm and get my scans (three hours to get there - two hours to get back); I will likely get the results next Friday. Nice to see nome back on the board. Habs are still looking up at Detroit.

    Thanks D2; your message appeared after I posted my response to Armed. One nice aspect to investing in the biotech space for years and in ONCY in particular is that I have learned a great deal over the years. Should my diagnosis be positive then I have a pretty good idea of how to focus my efforts to ensure that I get the best and most updated testing (biomarkers) and treatment matching those markers. Reo is available in Canada under the SAP if there is anything RAS. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to ask for links form this or the V2 board.

    Hi Armed: We had freezing rain this morning so I couldn't get to my appointment; rescheduled for Friday. The way things work here is that after the scans are completed then the information goes to a GP in town here and then he will schedule me in to get results. If the results require anything further then I have to wait to get into another facility for whatever is needed.

    Amongst the 30+ countries that have state healthcare systems, Canada routinely is ranked near the bottom in terms of effectiveness (value for money). I will keep you informed; in the meantime my quality of life is rather good; I am not sick just getting some inexplicable pain and of course that lump is rather disconcerting.

    D2's words about lung cancer not usually being palpable adds a little comfort but curiosity can drive one nuts while I wait. Habs looked good last night; they called up two young guns and both played rather well. They dominated Vancouver and Vancouver is a good club.

    We are looking up at Detroit these days.

    Cheers,

    Armed: I have so far avoided the latest news. A little bit of see no evil and a bit of being Canadian and knowing that we freeload off the US in matters of security. Really not my place to criticise (although that hasn't stopped me before). Detroit has played well of late; Hab's have been looking poor on the offense. The Hab's have done a significant shake up of lines for tonight's game. Puck drop in 1.5 hours.

    I get my CT scan tomorrow; I am hoping for acceptable results, maybe some rib problems?

    Cheers,

    With ONCY and Gold in the toilet I have been searching for a new investment opportunity and think I finally found the right one!

    Thought you might want to consider getting in on the ground floor.

    A German Engineer just started his own business in Afghanistan.

    He's making land mines that look like prayer mats. It's doing well.

    Bailey: It's the same ID's that come out with volume after any positive news. You would think that they would change up the ID's but they don't. D2's volume doesn't fluctuate, his recent explanation is valid, your conclusion of his intent is not supported by the evidence - keeping with an earlier theme - you two should get a room and kiss and make-up.

    Still long and strong,

    D2: If I don't hear anything in the next week I will take matters into my own hands. In Canada it is against the law to have private pay for service hospitals or clinics, however that does not mean they don't exist. Vancouver has a couple, they are used by politicians, regular folk with resources and interestingly, by the government run Workers Compensation Board. Not all is as it seems.

    I don't know if you ski, but Whistler is a world class resort with decent hospital facilities and the population has quite a seasonality to it. The busy season is just starting meaning there is a good chance I can get booked into there within the next few weeks, It is only a 2 hour drive.

    The nodule is about 1 centimeter and is causing pain similar to a blocked artery on the heart. The doc told me I have the heart of somebody in their late 30s; I am 57. I used to do silly things like go for a 100 mile bicycle ride in the afternoon and then spend the evening trying to drink the bar dry. I guess it was good for the ticker. A bit of a couch potato for the last 7 years.

    I am hoping it is not cancer, but then what could it be... a cist? At 1 centimeter it is small and caught early so my prognosis is probably pretty good.

    Cheers,

    D2: As you know I have been in ONC since shortly after its listing on the TSX (the TSE at the time). The bulk of my shares were purchased at C$1.20. You also know that I only post positive notes even though there is plenty of negative to discuss. I am frustrated at the length of time, mostly because I watch daily and anticipated shorter than average timelines and we are now looking at longer than average timelines.

    I am also frustrated because I am now in the Canadian health system and waiting and waiting to get a CT scan to investigate a painful nodule in my left lung. Treat early and treat aggressively is not a Canadian mainstay. Unfortunately socialized medicine reduces costs by letting people die while they wait. Good luck with Obamacare.

    Fundamentally Brad made a choice many years back to take a shotgun approach rather than a focused approach. Had he taken a focussed approach and missed his target the company would now be dead. Consequently, I support the choice he made and suffer with the rest of it.

    I do believe the company will eventually get approval for something and then grow from there but the waiting just got a little tougher.

    Cheers,

    Sentiment: Buy

  • From the V2 board.

    Despite the smaller patient pool for rare
    disease R&D, the economics of orphan drug
    development and potential for commercialization
    are attractive when compared to their nonorphan
    counterparts. Economic drivers such as
    tax credits, grants, waived FDA fees, reduced
    timelines for clinical development and higher
    probability of regulatory approval, coupled with
    commercial drivers such as premium pricing,
    faster uptake, lower marketing costs and longer
    market exclusivity, further fuel the economic
    power of orphan drug development.

    Cheers,
